Front seat comfort

Dont know about anyone else but I find the front seats in my 2006 XK uncomfortable after an hour or so and was thinking of fitting the fronts from an SRT-8 Grand (or even a WJ!!). Has anyone else done this?

Really, I love the seats in my Jeep. Maybe yours are worn out or something. I'm a pretty big guy, 6'2" around 260 and have never had a problem. The day I bought my Jeep, I drove 16 hours stright through and give the seats big credit, no back pain at all. Everday, I drive hour to and hour home from school and just sink into the seats. Thats the first thing everyone says to me when the jump in my Jeep, damn this things cumfy.

I like the seats as well. I have a Limited with leather. The passenger seat is low and I bought blocks to raise it up and inch but haven't installed them yet.

Me too, I think the seats are very comfortable. I've been very happy with all seats that I've had in the Jeeps that I have owned so far ('97 GC, '02 GC, '07 GC, '07 Patriot & '07 Commander).
My dad is very picky if it comes to car seats. He got a Recaro seat installed in his VW Caddy (which he drives for work). He too was very pleased with the seats in the Commander and he just drove my car from Arizona to Georgia without any complaints.

I'm 50/50 with my seat. Sometimes I'm comfortable in it, and sometimes my back and butt hurt after an hour drive. I can't figure out if it's me or the seat, but never had any issues with my previouse car (VW Jetta) seat.

Can you specify on said blocks? Do you need longer bolts as well?

I will agree the seats are not too comfortable. The seat to too deep. My right
leg goes numb after a while. Pressure on the back of the leg from the seat.

No complaints here. I have power seats. The drivers seat is all the way up and all the way back. I bump the rear tilt 2x's, and set the recline to a slight angle. The lumbar is about 25%. Pedals set so my foot rests on the gas - I don't have to stretch. I have 2 fusions in my neck with a steel plate and 6 screws holding everything together. Numerous trips to Long Island (16 hr) with no problems. The SRT8 seats would be awesome, though.

I think the seats are ok. The most comforable I have ever owned were the leather bucket seats in a 2000 Camaro. THOSE were the most comfortable seats ever and they didn't even have any electronic adjustments. My raised Jeep doesn't help either. I get tossed around a lot and I think that's why it gets uncomfortable after awhile.

I have a limited with leather. I am 6'2" and about 190. The problem is I find the seat digs into my butt and I have to move all the time. Also in comparison with the WJ ,which is by far and away the most comfortable car I have ever driven, there is no lateral support which means you have to hold yourself upright the entire time. Interestingly I dont have this problem in the sport version which has cloth seats that you tend to sink into. Anyway has anyone put SRT seats in a Commander?
